The Lords of Blood and Honey is set in a perilous new world, at once familiar, and yet disturbingly different from our own. Cardinal Oblong, Primate of the Holy Church of Afterwards, and Lord Chillhide, supported by a powerful group of nobles, both covet the Crown. Sworn against them stands the towering figure and intellect of Lord Hardknot, the 967th Keeper of the Royal Honeybees; a man driven by love of nature and hatred for the Church’s creed of suffering. He seeks Restoration of the outlawed Honeyist faith and has summoned evil beings to the Deep Hives to aid his complex ambitions.
